The full-package solution for energy data collection

The railpower box is the digital interface for your energy data collection and billing. It records the effective energy, reactive energy and the position of the traction unit and transmits it to the ground station (DCS). The billing-relevant data is determined every five minutes. In addition, the railpower box can also output energy and position data of smaller grids (≥ 10 sec) as a second load profile. These data are not billing-relevant and can be used, for example, to evaluate energy efficiency.

Compatible with other systems

Via an additional data interface (LAN), the railpower box can communicate with other assistance systems (e.g. Driver Advisory System DAS). With the master-slave function, two boxes on the vehicle can be connected to each other, whereby only the master box requires a connection to the roof antenna. This allows two separate reference points to be measured – with little effort for retrofitting.
